I couldn’t help myself, I took another selfie! And since it’s Whose Blog is it Wednesday, I’ve found some of my favorite bloggers’ photographic self portraits to share in my post.
I just can’t help taking a selfie every month or so. Add a reflection and I’m in heaven! I’m no longer embarrassed by my fascination with my image. And a cellphone is sure a lot easier than setting up a film camera on a tripod and using the timer like I did 30 years ago.
As I was photographing our new motorcycle a few weeks ago I serendipitously captured myself in a reflection on the bike. I love that kind of surprise and went to work playing (love the pairing of those words) with the image.
I am practicing with the app PhotoToaster on my iPhone. I went to open the app, but somehow opened Mobile Monet instead. But why waste a wrong turn? After all, not only had I captured myself, but bits of the yard as well, and they made for a pretty watercolor effect.
I did make it to PhotoToaster and do enjoy the crop and effect I settled on, but I think the Mobile Monet is my fave edit for the day.
When I decided to feature reflected selfies today as my second Whose Blog is it Wednesday, I knew if I did a word search using selfie on some of my favorite WordPress blogs I’d find some posts to feature. After all, WordPress Weekly did a photo challenge with that very theme in February. MY challenge was to find bloggers who used a reflective surface for their self-portrait.
- I headed to my friend Mara Eastern, knowing without a doubt she would have one. She’s that kind of quirky photographer. #037 Selfie finds Mara vainly (her word) photographing herself in a reflective red car’s surface. You go girl!
- I would guess my friend Sue at birgerbird doesn’t like taking pics of herself but she had a great one for the WP challenge. As she said, Nice n blurry just like I like it! Elevator doors make a great reflective surface.
- Vladimir at Wind Against the Current has a fantastic and creative shot of himself (behind the camera) and Johna Johnson infinitely reflected. Me, myself, and I… and I… and I… , a must see for the surreal effect!
- And finally, imagine my surprise when I searched the word selfie at Debbie’s space, Travel with Intent. She’s begun a monthly selfie, or should I say ‘themselfie’ post. The first is called Selfie Capital of Europe. Her image of a family taking a phoneselfie is great fun!!!! And guess who’s going to link to it with this post? My-selfie!
I invite you to click on the links above and visit these terrific bloggers to say hello!
As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day. Stay tuned next Wednesday when I write another mystery post and secretly search my friends’ blogs for related material. It’s a surprise for all of us!
